North Brookfield Savings Bank Announces Success of School Supply Drive

 

North Brookfield Savings Bank is committed to excellence and the support of their local communities, which is exactly why the Bank hosts the annual Back to School Supply Drive fundraiser in order to help children from their local communities to excel in school. With the fundraiser coming to a close, and the children returning to their school classrooms, North Brookfield Savings Bank is pleased to announce the fundraiser was a resounding success! In fact, because of the Bank’s contribution and the overwhelming support of local neighbors and community members, many of the children had a special backpack full of supplies to help start their school year of right. Shortly after our drive started in the beginning of August, we had a local resident make a very generous contribution of $500! North Brookfield Savings Bank was proud to match this donation with a contribution of an additional $500, kicking off this drive with not only supplies for each branch’s display, but $1,000!

“We frequently hear that our customers love this fundraiser, and we love it too! Back to School season is such an exciting time of year and we are so happy to work with our community members to support our local children,” said Andrea Healy, Senior Vice President of Human Resources. “I think we all agree that each and every child, regardless of income or circumstances, deserves the opportunity to be as prepared as possible to receive their education and start the school year feeling positive. It is so wonderful to be involved and help make that possible.”

Throughout August, North Brookfield Savings Bank employees, customers and community members showed their kindness and generosity by making thousands of donations. Many supporters visited the branches donating multiple backpacks and overflowing shopping bags of supplies, including pencils, notebooks, erasers, pencil cases, folders, and lunch boxes. When the fundraiser came to a close all school supply items were collected to be distributed to the children of local schools.

School supply donations were delivered directly to local elementary schools where the welcoming staff divided up the collected supply items and prepared them for children who would benefit from them in the coming first days of school. This year, the Bank used the monetary donations from this drive to provide those same local elementary schools gift cards to fill in the gaps for any items they may need to start off this school year. A $200 Amazon Gift Card was provided to each of our local elementary schools.

“The School Supply Drive fundraiser is a special event that brings joy to both those who donate and those who receive. It is so exciting to be able to help support local school children have the best year they can by starting off on the right foot.” said Nicole Syriac Marketing Coordinator. “We are overwhelmed and grateful for the continued generosity shown by the members of our communities. We all recognize the importance of every single child having what they need to start school the right way. Our sincerest thanks to everyone who showed their support.”
